Totally magic! I'm starting to wonder how I ever sewed without it!

I really need to try that stuff!

You totally do - it will rock your world. Like rotary cutters and clear rulers, the more I use it the more uses I find for the stuff!

Also try basting glue sticks. I use Sew Line. Its a pink "pen" with a stick of glue in it which is either blue or yellow. Once dried it is colourless.

Refills in packs of 2 are also available. Its fantastic stuff. In some cases thats all you need - for example if you have turnings onto a stiffened base then the glue would suffice.Though I prefer to use it as a basting glue and like precaution of hand sewing over it as well.

Its used by Quilters for their tiny seams before sewing down instead of bulky pins.

Also, Steam-A-Seam is my best friend!! ;-)

Oh I'll have to keep an eye out for the glue sticks - they definitely sound handy to have around!

So, any idea where the temporary basting goes when it's gone? I've often wondered that! Well, maybe not often, but it has crossed my mind.

And yay to anything that makes things easier!

No idea! I've wondered too but no luck in figuring it out... :>

It's complete and utter magic! You got me totally hooked on it when I discovered it in your 18th C stays diary, and now I spraybaste anything and everything and spread the word like a true missionary =)
